New Jabber conference for avast users
« on: August 30, 2010, 01:30:18 PM »

There is a new user chat room for users who want to discuss their problems with avast in real time.
This chat room is NOT visited by avast staff on a regular basis and is therefore not a channel for discussing problems with avast support staff.
You can enter the chat room using your IM client which supports XMPP protocol.
For more information please see http://public.avast.com/chatroom

Which one would you recommend ? We have experienced problems with some jabber servers such as neko.im

All I can say is that jabber.org didn't work but 0nl1ne.at does, it also offers more server features.

just an advice, for those not familiar with jabber, using Psi might be a good idea as it's extremely simple to manage http://psi-im.org/

On the Logos advice, I use Psi
XMPP - really cool!

Since these servers are dead...the thread isn't needed to be sticky any more...I suppose there are others that don't need to be stickies any more either...

Maybe if some of the dead ones get cleared, there'll be room for some replacements. :)

Sorry, we've changed server software and conferences were present under different service name (conference.avast.com instead of xmpp-chat.avast.com), now it should be fixed.

Is there anyone online on the Jabber servers or are they empty as usual ? I don't have a jabber client installed atm but if there is anyone online, i will install Pidgin or something.

I usually end up being in them, since pidgin connects when I start it (which is how I saw that the servers were different)...but from what I remember, they were usually empty.

I think, for a support option, they are too hard to join for the average user. I think there are probably better methods to provide a support option. (IRC springs to mind - even allows from within browser)

At the moment, with the server change, pidgin is not connecting.

oops yeah, that's new, the link still worked a few days ago. They probably shut down the site... well the software hasn't been updated for at least a year. Well there are so many other alternatives for jabber... Pidgin, Miranda, even Google Talk ;)
